    Iced Tea

    Iced tea adds a frisky twist to your regular hot cuppa. You can buy bottled or packaged iced tea or go DIY with a good old tea bag. Bottled or packaged iced tea is the easiest to consume as it requires no preparation at all; you can simply open it up and drink!

    If you are seeking to indulge in the therapeutic experience of brewing your tea yourself, Sri Lanka offers a range of teabags depicting various flavours. What you have to do is boil a cup of water and steep the tea bag of your choice in it for 5-10 mins. Once it reaches room temperature, you can add some cold water to the brew and refrigerate it for 1 – 2 hours. And voila, there you have your iced tea! Served in a tall glass with a straw, it is the perfect beverage to beat a sweltering summer day.

    Iced tea can be served sweetened or unsweetened. Many prefer to consume it unsweetened, mainly because of the miraculous health benefits it brings to consumers. As a healthy replacement for fizzy drinks, unsweetened iced tea is low in calories and sugar. Hence, you can sip your iced tea without having to worry about weight gain, one of the main reasons behind its rising popularity among healthy-eating enthusiasts.

    When brewed with black tea, iced tea can reduce the risk of cancer and chronic illnesses thanks to the flavonoids it contains. The antioxidants found in tea further stimulate the proper functioning of the immune system while the manganese boosts your metabolism. Due to the polyphenol antioxidants it contains, iced tea further reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Along the same lines, it also helps you to de-stress and keep your anxiety levels in check, earning a huge plus point from your beautician

    Cold Brewed Tea

    Cold Brew Tea from Sri Lanka

    Cold-brewed tea is an exquisite beverage that requires a relatively long preparation time. Making cold-brewed tea is a gentle and slow process that involves steeping tea in cold water for hours. You can use either tea bags or loose-leaf tea. Some depict a slight difference in the taste when tea bags are used, so it is a process of experimenting and experiencing.

    To make cold-brewed tea, you need to steep tea in a pitcher filled with cold or room temperature water and keep it in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours to extract the flavour into the water. If you are using black tea, it is recommended that the pitcher stays in the refrigerator for 8 – 12 hours. By the time you take the pitcher out, it will be infused with the most delicate tea flavour you have ever tasted.

    The main difference between hot-brewed iced tea and cold-brewed tea is that there is no hot water involved in the latter. Unlike hot water, cold water doesn’t cause the tannins to be released, resulting in a gentle soothing taste that stands in stark comparison with the astringent taste of hot teas. Cold-brewed tea has a peculiar touch of the mildest sweetness to it, the reason why it is considered to be a beverage with calming effects that can lull you to relaxation. One of the many perks of preparing your tea this way is that it contains much less caffeine when cold-brewed.

    So,if you are someone who thrives on a low caffeine intake, cold-brewed tea is perfect for you. In comparison to hot teas, cold-brewed tea is richer in vitamin C content which may be beneficial for your immune system. It is also believed that cold-brewed tea contains vitamin B and D and thereby increases metabolism and strengthens bones.

    Tea Concentrates

    Much similar to fruit concentrates, tea concentrates contain strong and concentrated tea that is meant to be diluted before consumption. Unlike iced tea or cold-brewed tea, this requires almost no prep time at all. All you have to do is add water or milk to dilute the concentrate; there is no steeping or straining. You can buy tea concentrates or make your own at home. If you opt for the latter, it may cost you some time and effort. However, on the plus side, you can make a big batch and keep it refrigerated for up to one week.

    Made from any type of tea, tea concentrates contain all the health benefits of traditionally brewed tea. For instance, it is rich in antioxidants that contain detoxifying properties. Tea also has widely known effects on heart health, reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. According to a study reported in The New York Times, those who consume at least three cups of tea per day have a 21% lower risk of stroke than those who consume less than a cuppa a day. In addition, it is considered to improve your metabolism while keeping you hydrated throughout the day.

    Be it tea concentrates, cold-brewed tea or iced tea, Sri Lanka is always ready to bewitch you with the magical elixirs that come under the Ceylon Tea label. A trusted household name, Ceylon tea has been and always will be the first choice of those with an eye for quality.
